Reading history 🗞

 

New

  

screenshot 1 copy 13.jpg

Given the new version of the feed algorithm, articles that were read might disappear fast. The feed algorithm is designed that way to allow for fresh content to surface up. However, the downside is that we might not find content that we have already read.

With the new reading history, you'll be able to access all of those articles that you read. One less thing to worry about, your reading history is in good hands, and you can access it any time 😄

Find it here

  1. Go to https://app.daily.dev/history
  2. Click on your profile -> Choose "Reading history"

Improvement

Following user feedback we got from the community, we decided to add a new time zone field in your account details. With the new time zone, you can:

  • Sync your weekly goal cycles
  • Sync your reading activity and other time-based achievements on your profile
  • Be cooler than anyone else on the platform (just kidding) 😄

How to add your time zone

  1. Click on your profile
  2. Choose "Account details"
  3. Scroll down and select your time zone in the relevant field

Background

For a long time, we've been busy shipping new features to daily.dev. The problem is that by now, it's pretty tricky to understand what our platform has to offer.

We did write tutorials and guides in the past, but they are all scattered in a bunch of different places. Therefore, the only thing that made sense was to centralize all the guides and tutorials in one place -- our official docs!

The link one more time 😅

Introducing daily.dev algorithm v2.0 ⚡️

 

Major Announcement

  

Shipping updates to our feed algorithm is always exciting, but today, we're announcing a major release! 🥁

We completely revamped the algorithm, writing it from scratch with all the lessons learned throughout the years of building daily.dev.

What should you expect? 🤔

  • High-quality content. The new algorithm surfaces high-quality content even if it means it needs to look a few days back.
  • Diverse content. You will see more topics and publications that you haven't seen before on your feed.
  • Updated constantly. Every few minutes, you will get a new feed tailored for you to enjoy high-quality content throughout the day.

I dunno, my feed looks the same

That makes sense! We're rolling this update gradually, but if you really can't wait, find us on Twitter. 😎
